Between mountains and the ocean

21st of May 2017

The first of my two weeks in Rarotonga already elapsed.
Opposite to what I expected I'm not just laying on the beach. Raro offers me heaps to do. Admittedly here's no actual surf instead the island presents me stunning mountains, which are looking like they filmed parts of the lion kind out here. Not that they're just looking magnificent, they presents me some spectacular hikes as well. My new local friends picked me up in the late morning, six of us did the hike together and ended it with a jump from a waterfall into the refreshing water. During the hike though, my face felt like it'll literally melt. Hiking in the tropics - definitely a tough affair!

Special thanks to my lovely friend Stelle, who organized the day and just being a great character XX

I believe we're here once
and what we do matters.
What do you believe?

When I left Germany, I was sure I'm afraid of the ocean. Sharks are really rarely at home, though I was always looking for them when I went for a swim in the north or baltic sea. But when I went for my first surf ever I didn't even think about sharks.

Then I went scuba diving!

Actually my biggest concern was the air pressure in my ears. But once in the water I was just amazed by all those coloured fhishes and how brave I was. I really impressed myself and fuckin' loved diving.

Later on that day I had this big argument with the hostel about not being allowed ANYMORE to use the washing mashine, because someone screwed it the day before. Even if I'm paying only 16$ a night - I'm here for 12 nights and need to do my laundry on one point. And that point is right now. I argued that they can't advertise it on their webpage and then change the rules. Instead of admitting it, they sent me to a laundromat - while it was raining af, 15 minutes away and 6$ per load. No fucking way!
Hungry as I was, I got really upset and pissed off about it.

Whilest I cooked some lunch, listened to music and soothed myself, I observed that I haven't been angry for a loooong time. Furthermore I noticed how often I had been upset in the past - before travelling.

Again I'm glad I decided to go travelling all these amazing, different countries with their great, open minded and relaxed mentality. I have noticed how much I like the person I have become. I remained calm and relaxed without losing my active, bubbly nature. 

Travelling is enhancing me, growing me, making me into a better person. And up to now I can't imagine that I ever wanna stop travelling.
I'm a slow walker, but I never walk back.
